Each Sage Bag is handmade from deer skin and stuffed with sage from the Black Hills. Sage pleases the spirits and is used for healing and to drive out negativity. Sage neck bags are traditionally worn continuously under the shirt with respect and for protection.
One side of the bag is signed by the artist (black bag is not signed). A Certificate of Authenticity signed by the artist is also available upon request.
Paula says - "If you'd like to use one of these bags as a medicine bag or to hold a totem or special item, you can slide the beads on the neck strap up, open the bag, remove the sage and put your item in the bag."
